552 Forest St

Main Cottage (715 sq ft) - 2 bedrooms, 21/2 baths / Guest Cottage (436 sq ft) - 1 bedroom, 1 bath. Richard Gibbs selected this lot and designed a main cottage with guest cottage for his personal residence during his tenure as Seaside's town architect. The cottages are surrounded by a grove of oaks on a quiet lot overlooking Forest Street Park. The embellished screened porch runs the entire length of the main cottage. Two bedrooms with private baths, along with laundry room are located on the first level. An outdoor shower is tucked under the stairway that leads up to the second floor. The great room is the true heart of the cottage. Interconnected living, dining and kitchen areas offer easy living. The dramatic raised ceiling with exposed cypress beamsadds volume allowing sunlight to cascade into the cottage from the side porch windows and door. Interiors colors are warm and inviting with comfortable furnishings. A built in desk with bookcase is flooded with soft sun light from the bay window. Take a midday nap in the hammock or have an intimate dinner on the upper porch. The kitchen is located at the rear of the cottage with a tall bank of windows perfect for watching an array of native birds passing through. Continue up the spiral stairs to the widow's walk with the most astounding views in town and a perfect perch for watching shooting stars. The separate guest cottage continues with the magical playfulness of the main house but with its own personality. The cottages are built with time tested materials. Room to enlarge main cottage.
